TWO-TIME RECORD HOLDER

Cherokee ( Iowa) junior quarterback Tyler Jones broke the state record for career passing yardage—twice. On Oct. 12 he surpassed the 6,813-yard total of St. Ansgar's Matt Sherman (1989 through '92) by a single yard, but his final completion of the game was for a one-yard loss and dropped him into a tie. Jones beat the record for good last Friday, completing 22 of 30 for 295 yards and two TDs in a 22--12 win over Sioux Center.

ELWAY'S NEXT STOP

Jack Elway, a senior quarterback at Cherry Creek ( Colo.) and the son of NFL Hall of Famer John Elway, gave an oral commitment to Arizona State last Saturday. Sun Devils coach Dennis Erickson was a former offensive coordinator under Jack Elway Sr., John's father, at San Jose State. With John serving as quarterbacks coach at Cherry Creek, Jack has thrown for 1,677 yards and 21 TDs with only three interceptions this season for the 6--2 Bruins.
